Homoarginine deficiency is associated with increased bone turnover

Abstract

Dear Editor, Homoarginine deficiency is an emerging cardiovascular risk factor, but homoarginine metabolism may also impact bone turnover because (1) homoarginine is a known inhibitor of alkaline phosphatases (AP), (2) homoarginine may increase nitric oxide (NO) synthesis with subsequent relevance for bone formation, and (3) homoarginine is critical for… (More)
